Cook Medical has begun making available its Aprima Access Nonvascular Introducer Set that’s indicated for use when placing wires guides during interventional radiology procedures with single-puncture percutaneous access.
The company touts the device’s smooth “transitionless” tip and the hydrophilic coating, the combination of which should provide easy access for the physician.
Key to the performance of the Aprima Access product platform is the transitionless design of the sheath and the introducer. The Transitionless-Tip is designed to help interventional radiologists streamline access and reduce the risk of patient trauma by substantially reducing any major resistance that could make insertion difficult.
The set’s design is highly radiopaque along the entire shaft including the distal tip to provide visibility under fluoroscopy after placement. The set also includes a hydrophilic-coated coaxial introducer, which works with the Transitionless-Tip to ease placement for drainage access. Physicians purchasing the complete set also have a choice of two EchoTip®needles designed for optimal ultrasound visibility.
Designed to accommodate physician preference, the complete Aprima Access Set options include a choice of two types of EchoTip echogenic access needles, two types of wire guides and the hydrophilic-coated coaxial introducer.
